Shop Refuses Photocopy Service

by freespeechmonika

The owner of a small-town local business in Jasper Alberta refused to provide a simple service today the 31st of January 2019, based on the idea that she did not want to serve a person who “hates”.

3 Sheets Jasper Inc. triples as a Stationery, Print shop and Laundromat. Upon my entry, Sonja L. Dickey asked me what she could do for me. I said I needed something photocopied. She replied that she needed to see what it was first. I asked if she was controlling and censoring everything first, before providing service. Is that how she runs her business, I queried.

There is a back story. About two years ago when I had brought in a two-sided color book review of Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil by Gerard Menuhin, to have copies made, she stared trance-like at it for a long time until I wondered whether she had had a stroke. She then informed me she did not want to “participate” in this. She refused to make copies. Since that time however, I have been in the shop on several occasions to make purchases or have other things copied. I was always friendly and even cracked jokes with her. I thought that dispute we had over the copy refusal had been somewhat amicably resolved. She was certainly willing to take my money for subsequent services and purchases.

Upon my protests today regarding her refusal to provide service in exchange for a fee in a shop which advertises this service, she stammered some incoherent things which made no sense to me. She said she did not want anything to do with something that might involve the police. I explained to her that she should never think we actually live in a free country with freedom of speech if this is the kind of fear she feels. She retorted:

I am NOT afraid.

I explained that if you have a shop, there is a simple exchange of goods or services for money, and that is what I was there to do. I dropped the document on the table and invited her to look at it. It could have been my mother’s kitchen recipes for all she cared at this point, because she did not even look at it. She simply declared that she did not want me there, she would not serve me and that I must leave. I remained standing. She declared, with glowering eyes, she did not want to serve someone…

who hates!

Oh gosh! What does that mean, I asked. She could not answer. They can never answer. She showed me the door. When I did not move quickly enough for her little tantrum, she threatened to call the police. I said go ahead. I laughed and went on my way.

    Hello Sonja,

    as far as I understand you did have some verbal altercation with Monika Schaefer.
    My question is, did you not have any curiosity regarding materials needed to be copied before you jumped to your conclusions?
    Why did you not fair and openly discuss your concerns with Monika for finding our the reasons for your cognitive dissonance?
    It could have been so easy to solve this problem right on the spot.
    You blaming Monika for „Hate“ but hating Monika for spreading the truth. If that is so. then our society is lost because telling the truth is obviously the new hate crime.
    Stating that you don’t want the police involved is another contradiction because you will call the cops if Monika isn’t leaving your shop immediately. You cannot have it both ways!
    I do not know you personally but it seems to me that you are carrying forward assumptions and bias.
    Is it not time for you to open up your mind and heart for finding out the real reasons for your awkward nonargumentative reasoning?

  2. I would like to invite anybody who is so fond of feeling fear to Germany. Here you can experience the REAL brainwash and FEAR programme! If the amount of fear in Canada isn’t enough for you, get the original amount of fear at the actual source. I think people invented the term „german angst“?
    So I think I could only laugh at being afraid of police because of copying documents and at the same time threatening to call police…. No, no, no laughing is the worst you could do because it destabilizes the fear programming – the HOLY FEAR, thou untouchable, unquenchable, undeniable FEAR! I repent of laughing, I am so sorry that I didn’t take you serious, o HOLY FEAR! May your majesty not be questioned and not be threatened….. but still… I think every child would burst into laughing at this point.
    I think one day the whole earth will laugh out loud.
    It would be a laugh that even serious copyshop- owners wouldn’t be able to resist.
